So this is definitely history in the making, we may actually see a Korean cable drama break 30%. The World of the Married came close with its final episode at 28.371% and today’s episode 8 of Reborn Rich (The Chaebol’s Youngest Son) got another major ratings jump to 19.442% with still another 8-episodes left to air. And here I thought Vincenzo was a huge hit for Song Joong Ki as the tvN series got the highest cable ratings for that drama at 14.634% but Reborn Rich is resetting this man’s top limit. Nowadays we don’t even see prime time non-cable dramas breaking 20% today and RR is almost there. Ratings aside, episode 8 was AMAZING. Like a thrilling roller coaster of plotting, tension, reveals, one-upsmanship all around. The wedding dinner was this drama’s version of The Red Wedding but without any blood haha. I love that Do Joon knows world events to use to his advantage but still has to navigate the beast that is Grandpa and the rich and power of Soonyang Group. I love that all the family members are fleshed out because it makes the battle of wits and alliances/betrayals that keep changing all the more interesting. It’s a shame this drama didn’t get Netflix global distribution, it’s on Netflix only in South Korea, because it’s definitely one of the best dramas in recent memory.
